Thanks for the advice, while annoying the extra hour or two of sleep will also be worth the bus ride. I will try to flip it to the 10 am CTS-HND flight. That should get me to NRT with ~3 hrs to enjoy...

Thanks CPH-Flyer for the thumbs-up. Just booked myself a room at Tokyu Stay Kamata as could specify a non-smoking room (hopefully it sticks) and put the Onsen down in my notes :)

Forgot about that... Does that stack with the old IHG Select 10% credit card benefits as well? 20% back would be worthwhile I think.

Sorry, I think an extra zero... :)

And there's an extra person charge if you reserve for 2 people online (3500 JPY/night).

Either way I think this is a bit too rich for my taste... I'd do...

If I were to use the Ambassador certificate for a weekend night assume I'd still pickup the points multiplier based on that (inflated) rate?

Was looking to stay here and use an Ambassador cert, but lo and behold, even for two nights it's the most expensive way to stay. Would be over 500K JPY w/o club access, plus another gratuitous 7K for...
